Anyone who studies the workings
of the human body has surely "seen God moving in his
majesty and power." Each eye has an autofocusing lens. Nerves and muscles control
two eyes to make a single three-dimensional image. Each ear is connected to compact
equipment designed to convert sound waves into
audible tones. Your heart is an incredible
pump. It has four delicate valves that
open and close more than 100,000 times a day. Think of the body's
defense system. It perceives pain. It generates antibodies. The body renews its own outdated
cells and regulates the levels of its own
The many amazing attributes of
your body attest to your own divine nature.
The Apostle Paul described it
as a "temple of God." How could this be? Because your body is the temple
for your spirit, and how you use your body
affects your spirit.
God is the Father
of our spirits. We are part of His
divine purpose. And when He created us
physically, we were created in the image of God.
Development of the spirit is
of eternal consequence.
When we truly know our divine
nature, then we will control our appetites. We will focus our eyes on
sights, our ears on sounds, and our minds on thoughts that
are a credit to our physical creation as a temple of
our Father in Heaven.
For these physical gifts,
thanks be to God! [MUSIC PLAYING]
God's Greatest Creation
As children of God, we are His greatest creation. "Anyone who studies the workings of the human body has surely seen God moving in His majesty and power." -Elder Russell M. Nelson
